We are working toward converting our system from a S/36 to an AS400 S36/E. On the way we are attempting to create DDS specifications for our files and externally define the files to the RPG code. We are prototyping a program to read the RPG II programs and build the DDS specifications from the source specifications contained in the RPG programs. Since we are basically new to the AS400 (we know a ton about the S/36, not very useful in the new world) we cannot find anything about how to define or use an array in DDS. Oh and we are moving to an old V4M4 machine because we need the M36 world as a working step to a more current AS400.
How are arrays processed in DDS and then made useful in a RPG program? The only thing we can figure is a field that is MOVE'd into the array each time the record is processed. Seems stuipd.
